Initial Hydrovane Drawing and Data

04 June 2008 | Oriental, NC
Keith, hot and humid
We don't have a scanner on the motorhome, but I do have a camera that takes good close-ups. This is one that we sent off via e-mail to the guys at Hydrovane. Supposedly, if we give them the measurements they need, they will design a schematic for our particular installation. There are a few complicating factors on my boat, most notably, the dingy and davits. But the Hydrovane is supposed to be able to work fine even if installed to the side, so it should't be an insurmountable problem. We've already been up on the boat once today taking measurements, then a trip to West Marine to see what parts they have that we might need, then a session back at the Bounder on the internet looking for parts, lunch, and now we are gearing up to head back to the boat for another session of planning and measuring. The main projects are the solar system, the wind generator, and the Hydrovane mechanical self steering. My cell phone reception here is spotty at best, but I do seem to be able to receive and make calls some of the time. Matt and I are both connected the internet so skype phone and video work, moreso on his computer then on the verizon network, which works at about dial-up speed, maybe a bit more. Our Bulgarian, American, Israeli friend called just a moment ago. Dragon's away.
